This year, Events Plus is once more innovating for its health and family annual fair. The focus this year will be more on health for a blossoming family life. According to the Group Communication Manager, Bruno La Charmante, the chosen theme for this year is “a healthy family” as health is a priority in all families. “Mauritians are increasingly concerned about their wellbeing. A family that is healthy, will be a happy family. At the fair, we will provide everything required for a family to be in good health,” he states. He invites the public to visit the fair with their family and children as surprises await them.
